Geçen sene Peter Reynolds´ın "The Smallest Gift of Christmas" kitabını paylaşmıştım. Tam da yılbaşı öncesi kitabın Türkçeye çevrildiği öğrenince çok sevindim ?? Yılbaşında kocaman bir hediye bekleyen miniklere gerçek mutluluğun aslında bir hediyenin boyutunun çok daha ötesinde olduğunu anlatmak için ideal... Zamane çocuklarındaki elindeki ile yetinememe ve doyumsuzluk bence çok büyük bir sorun ve bana kalırsa her geçen gün daha da kötüye gidiyor... Fazla söze gerek yok, çok tatlı bir hikaye 3 yaş üzeri için uygun.
